Greg has a ball helping Leigh make hay in the sun

LEIGH’S Greg Faulkner produced one of the best match-winning all-round performances of the season in the North Staffordshire and South Cheshire Cricket  on Saturday.

After taking 5-80 with the ball to help dismiss Rode Park & Lawton 2nds in Division Seven for 228, he grabbed his bat to hammer 130 not out – off 125 balls – in leading his team to a seven-wicket victory.

Faulkner’s ton-plus was achieved with the help of 19 fours.  He received excellent support from Rob Flowers (44) as Leigh responded with 231-3 to surpass their hosts total.

After making hay in the sun Leigh are a respectable fourth in the table after winning promotion from Division Eight at the end of last season.
